to a PPK or PPK/S. I have the 85FS and am new here to walther. Come here originally because my lady was entranced by a P22 with 5 inch barrel at the range yesterday. So I would value opinions in both areas the P22 and the PPk.

The PPK is a 70 yr old centerfire (.32 or .380) of steel construction, and the P22 is a newer .22 plinker with a polymer frame. Pretty different guns. If you're comparing to an 85 FS, you might consider the P99 in .40 or 9mm They look similar to the P22.

Ah, my mistake. I was thinking of the 92. I'm not up on my Berettas apparently...

looking at the P22 because my girlfriend has a hard time racking the 85FS (it is a blowback slide with a very hard spring) but she liked the P22 and was able to work the mechanism well. Si I am looking at alternatives for her because the P22 is nice for tagets but lacks stopping power for self defense
